Pancakes, Sausage & Eggs!

The other day I mentioned that I had some yummy pancakes for breakfast.  Finally, I'll share! I bought a bag of the Atkins Baking Mix a few weeks back from http://www.netrition.com/.  Been kinda experimenting with it.  I tried to try to cookie recipe...that did not go well.  So, I almost gave up with the stuff that quick, but then I saw on Bariatric Foodie that Jen has been experimenting with it as well and Dee shared some of her pancakes with us... http://bariatricfoodie.blogspot.com/2010/12/bf-product-review-atkins-baking-mix.html.  So, I tried the pancakes as well.

The recipe on the baking mix bag calls:
                              - 1 cup of All Purpose Baking Mix (Atkins)
                              - 1 splenda packet (I like sweet, so I used 2)
                              - 2 teaspoons baking powder
                              - 1/4 teaspoon salt
                              - 1 cup half & half (I used 1% milk)
                              - 1 whole egg

Blend the dry ingredients in bowl.  Add egg and milk.  Whisk batter very well and let sit for 5 minutes.
Coat pan with cooking spray and pour batter into pan to make small pancakes like this...

The recipe makes a lot of batter. So, I just made these three pancakes (two of which are still in the fridge!) and saved the rest. I used it to make some pancake bites (inspired by Eggface) this morning--post coming soon on that!

I wanted to get some good protein in with my breakfast so I also made a sausage & egg scramble to go with my pancake.  I used the new Jimmy Dean sausage crumbles and one egg with a splash of milk.  I added a bit of shredded cheese and scrambled it all together in a pan. It was goooooooood!

  My final breakfast plate looked like so...I topped the pancake with some sugar free maple syrup and snuggled up on the couch and enjoyed every single bite!
